AUSTIN, Texas -- A rough start left Waubeeka Golf Links pro Erik Tiele with some work to do after one round of the 31st Senior PGA Professional Championship.
 
Starting on the 10th tee at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa's Coore Crenshaw Course, Tiele made the turn at 8-over after a front nine that included a pair of double bogeys.
 
He made his first birdie of the day on his 11th hole, the par-4 No. 2.
 
He ended the day with a 10-over 80 and stands tied for 255th place in the field.
 
After Round 2 on Friday, the field will be cut to the low 90 plus ties. The top 70 will make it into the fourth round on Sunday.
 
Frank Bensel Jr., of Florida's Century Golf Club leads the field after Day 1 with a 7-under par that he earned on Barton Creek's Fazio Foothills Course, where Tiele will compete on Friday.

Interim Superintendent Robert Putnam also gave the School Committee its first look at enrollment numbers for 2020-21.
 
More than three times as many families are home-schooling their children this fall compared to recent years. In both 2018-19 and 2019-20, 10 families in the Lanesborough-Williamstown district were homeschooling; this fall, 34 families are.
